New, upscaled IDF reprisals for Palestinian balloon terror from Gaza

Israeli Air Force attack helicopters struck two Hamas observation posts in Gaza on Monday, March 4, responding for the first time to a balloon attack. A cluster of balloons carrying an explosive charge from the Palestinian territory exploded a short time earlier between two houses in an Eshkol Council location. There were no casualties.

On Sunday, military sources informed DEBKAfile that a new IDF policy had gone into force for hitting back at all manifestations of Palestinian terror. That night, an Israeli drone struck a Hamas look-out point directly after a Palestinian mob staged another nightly assault on Israeli troops, hurling dozens of explosive devices and hand grenades. In a break with the past, the Hamas post was attacked without delay even though there were no Israeli casualties. The IDF also announced that there would be no tolerance for the resurgence of the explosive balloon barrages from Gaza, which plagued Israeli border locations last summer. Israel would henceforth react by targeting those responsible for the Hamas balloon offensive, “and we know who they are,” said the statement.

The climate is heating up in the Palestinian arena in the wake of Israel’s revised reprisal policy and other recent developments. Monday morning, three Palestinian terrorists rammed a car at a group of Israel soldiers in Binyamin, seriously injuring a 28-year old IDF officer and wounding a border guard policeman. Two of the Palestinians were shot and killed while escaping the scene. Protest comes from Ramallah over the Israeli government’s deduction from the funds owing the Palestinian Authority of the stipends which the PA awards terrorists and their families. The thousands of convicted terrorists in Israeli jails are restive over cutbacks in their privileges; a dispute has flared over an area traditionally shuttered at the Golden Gate on Temple Mount. And, finally, the US consulate, which for decades served Palestinians in Jerusalem, was formally integrated Monday with the US embassy, an act which they condemn as downgrading their status and undermining their rights.

    In addition to deducting the funds used by the P.A. to subsidize the families of deceased and incarcerated terrorists, under “Pay for Slay,” the government should also charge the P.A. for the costs of those incarcerated by the Israeli Prison Service, including food, facility security, building maintenance, guard salaries and other related expenses. These are costs which would not have been incurred by the Israeli government had the P.A. not subsidized terrorism. As long as the P.A. subsidizes terrorism, the P.A. must either pay all the related costs for their fiscal decisions, or end the subsidization of terrorism.

      @Mike 71,

      All that would likely happen is the P.A. would request an increase of the “donations” they get from the Arabian Gulf states to make up the difference, then it’s business as usual.

      You are exactly right. However, you forgot one very important deduction, bro! The deduction of funds to support the family of every Israeli soldier or police officer who lost their lives to Palestinian violence, the deduction of support for life for family of every Israeli victim of Palestinian terrorists or violence. The deduction of pays for every Israeli soldier and police officer required for border security above the norm for any other country. This will take any monies going into the so called Palestine leaving them nothing as they deserve while ever violence rules on their behalf.

    How pathetic!

    The antisemite terror state thinks it can take a shower of rockets from Hizbollah or violate Iran’s airspace without consequence, yet it’s fighting a losing battle against kites and balloons!

    That’s what happens when a fascist nation is led by a fascist moron.

      Just a very respectful note to an obviously Scripturally illiterate smart person: Measured by cross section tensile strength, Latrodectus Mactans web strand is stronger than steel… Maybe time to revise the Nom de Plume….

      So…your advocating total destruction of all enemies to save face … like arabs do? You have no fugging idea how many Israelis would love to work with your philosophy … be thankful the nation is led by capable persons unlike yourself! I dont think you have any idea the hurdles involved in that Geo location are. Its better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open yer gob and remove all doubt!

    From the Debka article:

    ” The thousands of convicted terrorists in Israeli jails are restive over cutbacks in their privileges”

    Yes:the convicted terrorists used to have their choice between 5 different types of meat in the prison mess hall, but the beef, lamb, chicken and turkey were eliminated and all that remained was……………….the deli meat from that barn yard animal which just loves to roll around in the mud!

      This reminds me of why I love to let piggies take me from the back side! Mom and dad told me it would be a great stress reducer, and it is!

      I am so scared of Iran. They’re so big and strong and will steamroll our poor little Israel.

      I need piggie in me.

    if the caucasian khazarian horde was evicted from their stolen lands (israel)
    and forced to live in servitude in a tiny plot of their own former land (near russia / ukraine)
    and they took exception to that and fought against the usurpers who had displaced them

    would the non semite khazarian horde also be re labled as “terrorist scum” by the west ?
